Re: SoundSport left ear not working
hey dear people
i've been going through issues with the left earbud not working for several months on bose soundsport. it didn't work with my pc at all and only randomly with my sony mp3 player. i have gone through various forums here and didn't find a sollution until i figured it out for myself. i'm posting my fix here and in a few other similar threads in a hope that this workaround can also help some other users. apologies if this has been already solved in the same way. it hasn't a while ago when i was checking on fora and now i'm too lazy to go through all the answers.
so, basically i realized that it take up to one minute for the left earbud to activate. only when it is active it should connect with your device. here are steps i take for both earbuds to work:
1. if my little buddies are paired with a device i want to use, first i make sure that either i'm far from it or i deactivate the bluetooth function (the case with my computer. to deactivate in windows, you click on windows sing on your keyboard and start typing "bluetooth". you should then see an option "bluetooth and other device settings" so go there and do the thing
2. only then i take the earbuds out of their case
3. i wait for both earbuds to activate. you will hear a number of beeps in the right one. only when you hear a beep in your left earbud, it means it is active. it takes about 30s so be patient
4. then you are ready to re-activate your bluetooth function or come closer to your device so that the bluetooth connection can be established (in my mp3 player i had to swich off an option of automatic re-connection and i do it manually when both earplugs are active) and either let it connect automatically, or connect earbuds manually.
that's it. in my case both earbuds are then working fine and this has proven to work consistenly in the last few weeks
it is a simple process once you do it several times and and, while i shouldn't be doing it at all in the first place, it is actually not that much of pain in the ass after all, just a little extra habit.
again, hope that this could help some of you
